Default Re: tell a Model A related story


I’d enjoy a chat with the farmers I worked for. I’d land, my loader would arrive, and the farmer client and I would discuss details of the job to be done. There was rates of chemical to apply, size and shape of paddock/s etc etc. Then we would chat for as long as time permitted. When I was ready to start I’d say, the time has come the walrus said.
“and what did the walrus say?” I ask the farmer. In all my time I had only one fellow answer. That was Richard Sleigh.
Question. Do you know what the walrus said???

Some of you yes, but I’m sure many won’t without reading the first line in this verse. It’s the 11th verse.

The time has come,' the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —
And whether pigs have wings.'

And where did this poem come from?? The picture is small but the gentleman has a 10/6 tag in his hat. And what does 10/6 pertain to??
Answer will come later.

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
